What do you say when terrible things show up in your life? Do you say “Oh NO, look what happened?!” What about when great things show up? What do you say then? Anything like “Oh my goodness! I can't believe it!”? Would you like more great things to show up? Are you willing to acknowledge that YOU are the creator of everything in your life? All the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly? YOU created it all? If so, then say “Wow, look at all the awesome/rubbish stuff I've created in my life! I wonder what else I could create?” When you're willing to acknowledge that YOU are the author, creator, director, architect, engineer, draftsperson, CEO, President, Prime Minister, Grand Poobah of your own life, then you regain hold of the reigns of it's creation. If you can create magnificent rubbish, you can undoubtedly create magnificent magnificence. So then the question becomes, what would you truly like to create in your life?
Do you have an interest, hobby, project, event, job, business, or something that you'd love to share with others and have then join in and help it grow? Have you found it easy engaging others in your vision? Or have you been a little surprised that more people didn't “get it”? Maybe you've even been shocked that some of your closest friends or people you thought were in the same zone RAN AWAY? Have you or others ever described what you do as a “passion” or “higher purpose”? How do those descriptions sound to you? Light and breezy? Heavy and serious? What do YOU prefer in life? Light and breezy, or heavy and serious? Whichever that is, if you're not experiencing the interest in your project you'd like, ask “What question could I be that would tickle people's curiosity?” If you prefer light and breezy, add “..and laughter or something greater?”
Have you ever been overwhelmingly excited about something or someone? How did your body respond? Did your heart and mind race? Did you lie awake all night dreaming of all the future possibilities? Despite your lack of sleep, did you function on an adrenaline overload? Did your body enjoy it? What exactly did it contribute to the object of excitement? Did it expand you and your project with ease and elegance, joy and reward? Was it the invitation to others you expected? And did it help you get anything done? Or did your excitement distract you, keep you frozen in hopes and dreams? Did you find people did not seem to catch the fire of your excitement the way you expected? If excitement has not worked the way you thought it would, ask “What contribution is this excitement?” If you notice it's not what you thought it was, ask “Who does this belong to?” and What else is possible?” What if simply being you were the greatest contribution, beyond anything you can imagine?
